Apple hid an AR Easter egg in its September event announcement

Apple has officially announced its upcoming “Time Flies” event for September 15th, and the company hid a neat augmented reality Easter egg in the event announcement that uses Apple’s ARKit to turn the swirling Apple logo into a floating image of the “9.15” event date.

This is really fun! (Click the Easter Egg link in the article while on your iPhone/iPad.)

Putting on my speculation cap, here’s what I’m hoping to see on the 9/15 #Apple event:

  • #iPadPro inspired #iPhone 12 (duh)
  • Cheap iPad but with new Pro styling
  • “AirPhones”
  • More affordable Watch options
  • Teaser (or beyond!) of first Apple Silicon #Mac
  • A new app surprise of some kind (Terminal for iPadOS? 😎)
    • (Honestly Logic and/or MainStage for iPadOS would be pretty sweet. FPC X would be a stretch, but a man can dream…)

After months of staying at home and sheltering during the pandemic, I just couldn’t take it any more. I had to get out of the city and see fresh scenery and recharge. Making sure to remain socially distanced and take every precaution while traveling, I was able to drive along the gorgeous Oregon coastline and enjoy some much needed R&R. This is a mini-documentary about my journey!

Season 4, Episode 1

Essential Life with Jared is a vlog series all about adventure in Portland & the Pacific Northwest combined with the philosophy of essentialism. It’s about finding your own way and never walking somebody else’s path. It’s about living a creative life that’s most meaningful to you.

Every few months to a year, I get an itch to freshen up the typography on my blog. I’ve been using Helvetica Now as my body font for a while, and I still love it. But for long-form articles, I’m now using Sina Nova. I think it looks ace!

P. S. In related news, my whole #website (blog/podcast/newsletter/the works) is now powered by #Bridgetown. Farewell #Jekyll — you were my first love in the world of Static Site Generators. Parting is such sweet sorrow! (OK, I’m being dramatic…Bridgetown is a fork of Jekyll. 😆)
